Looking for a small, affordable, private, Christian day school with a small town community feel? Can you appreciate a school which begins each day with the students reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and singing My Country ‘Tis of Thee? Then please come visit the open house at Our Savior Lutheran School, which will be held Thursday, April 28th from 9:00-11:00 a.m. and 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Come see a hidden gem of a school which has been in the heart of Arlington providing education and service since 1952. The school is conveniently located close to the Pentagon and Route 50 in Arlington.

Grades Pre-K (age 4 by September 30) through 8th grade are offered with very small class sizes (only 20 students per class). The elementary school grades have self-contained classrooms, while the middle school is departmentalized. The school also has one of the lowest tuition rates in Northern Virginia. The dedicated, caring teachers work hand-in-hand with an active community of families which make this school thrive.

Students are encouraged to start a life of service through various opportunities:

  • Weekly Chapel offerings are designated to various groups in need for our neighbors in Arlington and around the world
  • Walk for the Homeless and preparing bag meals for ASPAN
  • Letters to pen pals (elderly members of the church congregation)
  • Stop Hunger Now — the entire school helped prepare dry meals to send overseas
  • Pairing middle schoolers and kindergarteners as chapel buddies
  • Sixth graders begin and start the day by raising the American flag and assisting with the Kiss-N-Ride line
  • Our Savior also offers many extracurricular activities including a music and a choral program, After school clubs that include foreign language (Spanish and French), and a baking club.

If you are interested in what Our Savior has to offer and why this school shines, please come by the Open House on Thursday, April 28th from 9:00-11:00 a.m. and  6:00-8:00 p.m. or call to schedule a tour any other day.

Sedona? Or Slate? It’s a mindset. It’s a lifestyle decision. It’s a double-shot of urban living in Rosslyn. Do you prefer the warm, boutique hotel-inspired vibe of Sedona or the sleek, contemporary feel of Slate? No matter which you choose, you can’t go wrong.

See for yourself the stylish choices offered at the upscale apartment community Sedona|Slate and tour the residences in person to take advantage of special Open House incentives this weekend through Monday.

Inside both towers, you’ll encounter apartments in carefully considered layouts and sophisticated interior design. Top of the line finishes include sleek plank flooring, stainless steel appliances, large kitchen islands, front-loading washers and dryers, state of the art electronic key system, and a selection of three designer finish packages.

Many residences feature both floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies offering views of the skyline.

This upscale community offers amenities in each tower with two rooftop lounges, two swimming pools, and two KICK fitness centers with personal trainer and group classes offered. There is ample outdoor space with a courtyard featuring outdoor seating and grilling stations. In addition, Sedona|Slate is also pet-friendly and welcomes large dogs up to 100 lbs.

With an eye towards green living, there is an electric vehicle charging station, preferred parking for hybrids, plentiful bicycle storage, and residents enjoy the fresh air benefits of living in a smoke-free community. Sedona|Slate is proud to be the first LEED-NC Gold certified residential building in Northern Virginia.

The benefits of living in Rosslyn include easy access to three Metro lines (Orange, Blue and Silver), being steps away from all the vibrant restaurant and retail offerings of this North Arlington neighborhood, and a quick walk over the Key Bridge to Georgetown’s nightlife.

The Open House hours are Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday noon to 5 p.m. and special extended hours on Monday 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. which affords visitors to see for themselves the community amenities in action on a workday. Which will help make the choice easy–Sedona? Or Slate?

Those new residents applying during the Open House can save up to 1.5 months free rent in addition to receiving an Amazon Echo Bluetooth speaker when they move in.

Sedona|Slate’s leasing office is located at 1510 Clarendon Boulevard. To learn more about this inspired choice for modern living, view the website at Sedona-Slate.com or call 866-977-0468.

For many, a vacation to the South of France is a considerable expense and represents one of the biggest investments of time and money spent for the year. There is trepidation, particularly for first-time travelers, as they worry if they are doing the right thing.

Arlington-based TripUsaFrance is on hand to break down that barrier by making the entire experience–from booking to embarking to coming home–as frictionless as possible. Because this isn’t their first trip.

Customized tours with TripUsaFrance to the less-touristy, authentically French region of Southern France are kept small so that the travelers have flexibility in their movements (no tourist traps!) and wind up getting to know each other as they experience the enrichment of traveling through such a historic and beautiful country.

The family-owned firm is operated by Julia Girard-Gervois, who is also your tour guide. A native of Montpellier, Julia takes the responsibility for getting you from the Montpellier airport or train station to your hotel which will be your home base for her carefully crafted tour for a unique experience of French culture. She’ll take you to restaurants familiar to her, show you landmarks that she knows well: Medieval cities, ancient castles and chateaux, canals, wineries, beaches and markets–an insider’s trip where history meets today.

“We do the planning for you to make your trip as authentically French as possible,” Julia says. “Once you get to Montpellier by plane or train, we take it from there.” Inclusive pricing provides you with three meals and snacks, local transportation and accommodations, admission to wine tastings and other activities.

Tours are available for adults over 18 as well as a family option, but no matter which type you go on, your tour will have no more than 12 travelers.

And along the way the former French teacher Julia will help you learn un peu la langue française. Which will make your next trip to France all the more enjoyable.

Let’s say you’ve landed an apartment at Alexandria’s hottest property, Notch 8, the brand new six-story, upscale building located in Potomac Yards. Let’s say you breeze home from work on the nearby Metro and are ready to make dinner, but you find you are lacking an important ingredient: Groceries.

What do you put into those hardwood cabinets in the pantry, or set out on the kitchen islands, or steam, roast or grill in the new stainless steel stoves and ovens?

Well, the good news is, besides living in an apartment with plank flooring, oversized windows streaming in natural light and having the climate controlled by a high-tech Nest “learning” thermostat, you live atop — quite literally — a Giant Food grocery store.

Handy! But wait, as they say: There’s more.

What if the groceries were free?

Despite the building being two-thirds occupied, the management is holding an enticing sweepstakes for first-time applicants with approved applications that rewards the winner with free groceries for a year. That’s an up-to-$6,000 value.

Sign up now until May 1.

What could you do with 24 Giant Food gift cards each worth $250.00, good for the Giant Food downstairs?

Oh, let’s just think.

You could host at least one or two parties on the swimming pool deck (grills provided). You could provide beverages and snacks for a number of sit-and-chat sessions by the fire pit near the outdoor billiards tables. You could spring for popcorn on the monthly movie night, but management has that covered.

Or you might just want to keep the up-to-$6,000 to yourself, fill those designer pantries with premium goodies and enjoy life full stop at Notch 8.

Notch 8 is convenient to Route 1 and I-395, offering direct access to the District. The underground garage has EV charging stations and a Zipcar right next door.

Plus, there is a dedicated Metroway bus running every six minutes during rush hour to both the Crystal City and Braddock Road Metro stations on the Blue and Yellow lines.

Notch 8 is located at 2900 Main Line Blvd in Alexandria. Learn more about this free groceries sweepstakes on Notch 8’s website or call 866-811-1457.

Local News Now logoARLnow.com parent company Local News Now LLC today reported record monthly readership across its network of four Washington, D.C. area community news websites.

For the 30-day period ending March 24, LNN’s four sites — ARLnow.com, Reston Now, Hill Now and Borderstan — were visited by 435,000 unique visitors, according to Google Analytics. The sites collectively served 1.75 million page views during that time.

That’s a new record for LNN, which last year re-launched Borderstan, a D.C. neighborhood blog founded in 2008 and acquired from its original founders, while at the same time selling its Bethesda Now website to Bethesda Magazine. The record readership was driven by local stories — unlike past readership records, this time there was no spike in traffic from a story that received national attention.

LNN’s first community news site, ARLnow.com, was launched in January 2010. LNN only publishes online and has no print publications.

With offices in Arlington and D.C., LNN seeks to serve and improve our communities by keeping readers informed about local news that’s relevant to their lives — and by providing local businesses with effective and affordable online marketing options.

netpure™ home WiFiThe following is a promoted post written and sponsored by netpure™

Two Arlington dads have launched a company that adds a child safe WiFi network to your home in two steps. The Internet is the greatest educational resource in the history of man, but it is also a dangerous place, especially, for children. Jere Simpson and Jared Agnew, co-­founders of netpure™ and fathers themselves, know this as well as anyone — thus they have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the solution to every parent’s worst nightmare.

Founder Video: https://youtu.be/KwRg74uxlwQ

Jere and Jared have spent the past 20 years building world class Internet security systems for the FBI, Navy SEALS and more. They have used insight gained from building these complex and secure systems to provide a safe Internet experience for children. Now, parents, grandparents, educators and others, can have their own user­ friendly plug-­n-­play device that will protect even the most curious children from unsafe content on the Internet.

“Recently, we collaborated with the best and brightest minds from our respective companies and created a new company,” explained Jere Simpson, Co-­Founder of netpure™. “Together, we have been building award­ winning systems with companies like Dell, Samsung, and Amazon for years, but this is truly our proudest accomplishment and we are now ready to share it with the world.”

So, how does it work? Simply, plug netpure™ into your router, register, and enjoy the benefits of a new, child safe, Wi­Fi network for your children and their friends, compatible with any Wi­Fi device. Children simply connect their devices to the netpure™ WiFi, while parents continue business as usual with their unchanged WiFi settings. No more configuring each and every device that comes in and out of the home. Parents will also have the option to set designated times for educational content exclusively or to turn their kid’s internet off altogether from their smart phone or watch. In addition, they will receive text alerts and monthly data analytics of family activity that will keep them aware of their children’s online behavior.

Inspiration: The two dads were frustrated by the complexity of parent control options and the ever growing digital dangers. They have worked closely with “O.U.R,” a non-profit group of former Navy SEALS that rescues children who have been kidnapped. These experiences inspired them to bring netpure™ to market. Find out more at ourrescue.org.

The Kickstarter campaign goal is set at $80,000 and the campaign will run 30 days beginning on Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016. Kickstarter backers can receive netpure™ in their homes four months ahead of the general public at up to a 40% discount. The cellular version of their solution arrives this summer and is included for existing customers. To learn more about the product, visit netpure.com.

Fillmore PizzaFillmore Pizza is available for walk-in or delivery from 11 to 11 daily, and until 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Locations are at 923 S. Walter Reed Dr. (call 703-920-9110) and 5175 Lee Highway (call 703-532-9110). Fillmore Pizza is also happy to cater any occasion; call for details.

Arlington is stuffed with pizza. It’s our go-to, default, twice-to-three times a week weakness. Because it’s easy, it’s a known quantity and we kind of like it.

But not all pizza is created equally. In fact, some is created superiorly, and that would mean Fillmore Pizza. Fresh dough every day. Fresh tomato sauce. Fresh vegetables and meat toppings.

But Fillmore Pizza is not just pizza. Tuscan hummus, stuffed grape leaves, spinach dip, kalamata olives and warm pita triangles are the starters of a menu that cruises the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. An endless variation of calzone combinations dazzle the hungry diner with spinach & artichoke, chicken portabella, meatball and classic Italian cheese and meat. (And don’t forget the chicken wings, flavored to your taste.)

In the mood for something substantial? Cheese manicotti, heavenly layered lasagna, chicken alfredo, classic spaghetti and meat sauce and assorted raviolis await. Oh, and baked meatballs. Talk about substantial.

As for sandwiches, fresh and light are the keys, with the Napoli offering fresh mozzarella, basil and tomatoes in a light olive oil sauce; roasted eggplant brings together a garden full of savory flavors and the Milano adds a mixture of classic Italian meats–prosciutto, genoa salami and ham–to the concoction. Of course there are steak, chicken, turkey, meatball and gyro in the sandwich mix. There’s even a grilled cheese, but not your usual; this one is mozzarella and provolone with fresh tomatoes.

The dessert offerings continue the Mediterranean theme, with cannoli and tiramisu side by side with cheesecake and classic chocolate cake.

The preceding was a sponsored local business profile written by Buzz McClain for ARLnow.com.
